    DescriptionChoo's Evidence provides students with a lucid account of the core principles of the law of civil and criminal evidence in England and Wales, thus equipping them with a sound understanding of why the law has developed in the way that it has. This clear and engaging text explores current debates and draws on different jurisdictions to achieve a fascinating mix of critical and thought-provoking analysis for students and practitioners of the law of evidence. Thorough consideration is given to all areas of contemporary concern, particularly the ongoing implications of the Human Rights At 1998 and the Criminal Justice Act 2003. Online Resource Centre Evidence is accompanied by an Online Resource Centre, which provides essential updates to the text and a helpful list of web links.

    Review quote
    Choo's text provides a very accessible explanation of the law of evidence, alongside a wealth of further source material that can be followed by law students and academics alike with relative ease. Emma Smith, Northumbria University, The Law Teacher, 2012 It is admirable that, although Choo's text is shorter than some other notable texts in the area, detail is not sacrificed in order to facilitate the inclusion of more material. Choo does not shy away from introducing the reader to more complex concepts or debates such as Wigmore's approach to relevance and the hearsay debate and these are explained clearly and often to an impressive degree of complexity. Emma Smith, Northumbria University, The Law Teacher, 2012
